The Foundation Clicker Course, originally created by Kay Laurence (Learning About Dogs), is a course for you and your dog. It serves as a starting point for any training you will do or as a stand-alone class. We’ll teach you all the skills needed to get the behaviors you want and to get rid of all the behaviors you don’t want. Upon successful completion you will be ready to begin more advanced training. This class will not only show you how to train your dog but also will help you to understand why you do what you do. It will give you a whole new understanding of your dog and the importance of your relationship with him or her.Motivate without briberyUse food rewardsEffectively lure a behavior.Use a clicker.Repeat and maintain quality.Add cues and signals.Control body language.Manage training sessions.Increase criteria.Teach new behaviors by shaping.Extend behaviors.Add reliability.Use targeting.
